ExpressVPN Chrome Extension: How to Set Up ExpressVPN on Google Chrome

Without any surprise, you can set up ExpressVPN on Chrome in a matter of seconds. However, keep in mind that ExpressVPN's Chrome extension works as a remote for its native software. So, you won't get a proxy (which is what most other VPNs bring) - but a fully-featured VPN instead.

The only requirement is to install ExpressVPN on Windows, macOS, or Linux first. Then, you can add ExpressVPN to Chrome and connect to any of its 3,000+ servers. Don't worry if that sounds complicated, as we'll guide you through this process from scratch.

That said, let's jump right in!

How to Set Up ExpressVPN Chrome Extension

As mentioned above, installing ExpressVPN on Chrome requires you to have its native app installed. These are the steps you need to take:

1. Sign up for ExpressVPN using your computer and any Web browser.

2. Then, click "My Account" using the top-placed main menu on ExpressVPN's website. Provide your credentials and access your ExpressVPN account dashboard.
